That's what I thought. When I originally did the Arch build scripts for 
trinity I had libjpeg-turbo as the dependency, but the current scripts in 
tde-packaging use libjpeg. I've updated my set to use libjpeg-turbo and am 
recompiling Qt3 as we speak. I'll update the Arch scripts in tde-packaging as 
soon as I figure out how to do it :) (it took about 5 minutes to figure out 
svn, I'm sure it's the same for git :)
